Shows the wrong phase

The App has some good information but consistently gets the cycle phases wrong. You are supposed to be able to enter the date of your last period and it will show you what phase of your cycle you are in and there provide recommendations on fasting, eating, exercise, and more. Unfortunately, it seems to be stuck on the “Nurture” phase (days 21-28 of your cycle). I tried changing around the dates to no avail.
There seems to be an option to not follow your moon cycle, however, when I deselect the moon cycle it stays stuck on the “Power” phase (days 1-10).
It would be great if we could follow along with our cycle, which seems to be the idea. Also, it would bale sense to let us scroll through the phases of our cycle so we can plan ahead.
If they could fix this problem, the app would be amazing but sadly it isn’t working.
Finally, I would recommend adding features for us to track our fasts and food that we eat so we can monitor our protein and carb intake. However, if they could just fix the moon cycle feature, that would be a good start.

So much potential…

While the app has the basics from the book, which is great, there’s so much more I’d love to see (and would potentially pay for). A couple things that would make a world of difference are: I wish it said which cycle day I am on (and potentially have the ability to enter ovulation) not just the phase. This would reduce the need for an additional cycle tracking app and aid in planning ahead. I wish it had a fasting timer, again, reducing the need for another app and switching between multiple ones to see what cycle day I’m on, what phase I’m in, and how long to adjust my fast for. I also would like to see it have a calendar to see where I’m at in my cycle and when my period is predicted, etc. and include historical data such as how long I fasted for each day. - incorporate the 30-day reset into the app!

Additionally, it obviously needs some fixes since it doesn’t move through the days and phases correctly. For me, it went from manifestation right into nurture on day 16 and skipped power phase 2. Not very helpful!

Doesn’t work - problems

Agree with other reviewer.

Downloaded last night, in putted period start. Correctly had me in Manifestation. I should be in the 4 day Power Phase today. But it’s showing Nurture phase.

Like the concept but the apps utility seems extremely limited.

—wish there was an easy, clear calendar to track and log fasting hours or to select desired fast length and input time of last calorie intake and have it start a timer for you. Then you could see your fasting history over time.
—combine period tracking with fasting tracking. Cycle lengths. Visibility into how your cycle might adjust in parallel to fasting regimen.
—envision the best period tracker combined with best fasting tracker.
—design is pretty, but static and clunky

Pro—finally someone who gets appetite related to hormone cycles. No period tracker gets that! They make it all about tracking cravings (the whole pms cliché of just wanting sweets and carbs and sitting on the couch—drives me crazy).

Whats real for me (and many other ladies I’ve talked to) is a surge in *hunger* at ovulation and at the week before my period starts. I call it the bottomless pit syndrome. I have no desire for the “bag of potato chips” — I still eat my typical foods, but I am hungry almost immediately after eating and can’t get satiated. No one talks about this except for on random Reddit threads.

Excited to see this app recognizes that phenomenon but the execution isn’t there yet.
